LOS ANGELES (AP) — "The Avengers" isn't playing yet on U.S. movie screens, but the superhero dream team already is a marvel at the worldwide box office.

Final figures from distributor Disney on Monday put the overseas haul for "The Avengers" at $185.1 million since it began opening in 39 markets last week.

That's nearly $7 million more than the studio had estimated Sunday.

Among the revenue highlights for "The Avengers" were $25.5 million in Great Britain, $19.8 million in Australia, $16.9 million in Mexico and $13.9 million in France.

Based on the Marvel Comics series, "The Avengers" cast includes Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Mark Ruffalo as the Incredible Hulk.

The film opens in U.S. theaters Friday.
